Kingston near Lewes 6.5 miles circular walk

Above is a panoramic view towards Lewes from the field west of Swanborough Manor and below some zoomed shots of the castle. Tony lead this beautiful walk from the Mid Sussex Ramblers' programme on Tuesday 25th November 2008. Click on any picture to expand it - especially the panoramic shots. Whimsically the pictures are in the reverse order of the walk on the day.

Pretty little calf.

South Downs Way, which at this point some call the "yellow brick road" on Iford Hill with Seaford Head in the distance.
Fabulous panoramic view from Swanborough Hill overlooking Kingston and Lewes. And below zoomed pictures of Lewes Castle and Kingston Church from the same position.

Tapsell gate closed and below, open.
Many thanks Tony, for another great walk.

7 miles Steyning circular walk. Tuesday 18th November 2008

There was a good attendance for this splendid walk, which was lead by Celia and Eric. It was from the Mid Sussex Ramblers' programme of walks. Leaving Steyning we followed the banks of the river Adur, north to the Downs Link path where we headed south-west and west before turning SE and S back to Steyning. The weather was dull yet pleasant enough to make this a memorable day. The river Adur with Lancing College chapel in the background. Open this picture to see the college in the distance.

We took a break on the disused railway, which is now the Downs Link path.

(Further north from the bridge is this pill box which housed a heavy, 25 pounder gun. Thanks to Celia for this picture.)

The view looking east towards Truleigh Hill and beyond.

Many thanks Celia and Eric for a lovely walk.

What a great walk. Thank you Bernard.
